Those who do not like to enjoy a tasy grilled cheese raise their hands! That's what we thought. Now, making a grilled cheese is a pretty simply thing, let's agree. But sometimes, it's about adding a little funkiness and sophisticated ingredients (although we do love the original Kraft Singles) to create a grilled cheese that will make your taste buds go bonkers!

Ingredients:

8 slices of bread

Butter

1/4 Cup of honey

1 cup old cheddar (grated)

1 pear, sliced (or apple)

1/4 cul of walnuts, roughly chopped
